TWO PROSPECTIVE OWNERS COME FORWARD FOR SAN DIEGO'S IHL TEAM
Published March 17, 1995
Two L.A.-based businessman have made a refundable deposit to the IHL for an expansion team that would play next year in San Diego. Steve Perry and Howard Silber met with City Manager Jack McGrory "for the third time in as many weeks and came away cautiously optimistic." Silber said there "was a good chance the IHL will be in San Diego next season." The one "sticking point" could be the city's unwillingness to guarantee an IHL franchise the chance to play in the proposed new arena downtown. City Mayor Susan Golding claims the city needs an NHL or NBA franchise "as the anchor tenant" to make construction financially viable (Trotter & Bloom, SAN DIEGO UNION TRIBUNE, 3/16).
